Bryan, I apologize if what I said sounded callous. I had no idea you had been caught in a situation like that.

I really was speaking specifically of August West. My thinking was that he's been wandering around repeating his innocence to himself for so long that even if he were guilty he might have come to believe he wasn't. When you're that alone, there's not much to counter your denial.

I have no doubt that there are guys locked up for things they didn't do. Again, I'm really sorry for hitting a nerve. Hope you get vindicated when it's all over (and if the cops planted contraband on you, that their collective ass gets busted all the way back to Dunkin' Donuts).

Don't sweat it. I knew then, and I know now that you meant no harm, and even though it probably didn't seem like it, neither did I. I sure wish to Christ, though, that my opinions on these things had not been shaped in the manner that they have. And please accept my apology for creating an impression that I hold some measure of malice toward you for making that comment, because I do not. I did understand some of the philosophical intent there. Or at least I think I understand, but there is so much in the world that goes right over my head, anyway. The point is, it's all good as far as what you said is concerned. I don't know if I had ever seen your name attached to any of the posts on the GD Forum, and if you are new, please don't get scared off by me. Get scared off by SomeDarkHollow, but not me (kidding---he seems to thrive on good-natured mental and emotional abuse, so I couldn't resist).

Bryan, it takes more than that to scare me off. :) I didn't take what you said as an attack or anything; I was just afraid that I'd hit a nerve inadvertently. I don't blame you for responding with, shall we say, great force. It sounds like you've been through hell, and more to come.

I'm fairly new to the forum, so thanks for the warning about SDH. I'll watch out for him . :)
